Leura Park Estate lands Qantas international contract
Local vineyard, Leura Park Estate has been awarded a contract to supply Qantas international Business Class with its renowned 25 d’Gris, hand-picked 2010 Pinot Gris.
The contract is the second time Leura Park Estate has won an invited tender to supply Qantas international Business Class. The vineyard was awarded the invited tender for its 2008 vintage 25 d’Gris Pinot Gris in 2009.
More than 200 wineries from around Australia were invited to submit wines for consideration for the Qantas international Business Class wine list.The quality of the Pinot Gris has been reinforced by recently taking out a coveted gold medal in the prestigious Wine Spirits Asia Wine Challenge 2012 held in April, in Singapore where it was up against more than 700 wines from around the world. Leura Park Estate Pinot Gris is estate grown, hand-picked and one of several signature Leura Park Estate wines.Made in a traditional French style, the 2010 25 d’Gris involved two late picks and is a classic depiction of a truly delicious Pinot Gris. It boasts fresh flower and pear scents with a hint of wood spice. Elegant acids are accentuated by guava and pear notes with a rich, mineral backbone.
Leura Park Estate 25 d’Gris Pinot Gris 2010 retails for $30. Whilst the vast majority of the wine will be delivered to Qantas, there are limited stocks remaining at the Leura Park Estate Cellar Door which is open on weekends (10.30 – 5pm), 1400 Portarlington Road, Curlewis.
